To date there is no imaging modality for cardiac arrhythmias which remain the leading cause of sudden death in the United States (>300,000/yr.). Electrocardiographic imaging (ECGI), a noninvasive modality that images cardiac arrhythmias from body surface potentials, requires the geometrical relationship between the heart surface and the positions of body surface ECG electrodes. A photographic method was validated in a mannequin and used to determine the three-dimensional coordinates of body… CONTINUE READING
